Having not been able to focus on programming of late, and needing to recieve a pay cheque, I have been looking around for some templates for Requirement Specifications, and Design Documents. If I produce a couple of these, I should be able convince work that I am doing something :).
You may remember a few posts ago, I was being all
about working with people who just want a prototype, etc.. Well, after reading some Dilbert
, I've taken it apon myself to snow them under with paperwork. Then when they complain that it doesn't do what they want, I will retort with "well it was in the specification that way...".
Anyway, here are a couple of templates that I have found, the first one has proven fairly useful in the past in opening discussion about an application. The second, I haven't tested yet, but it all seems to be there.Software Requirement SpecificationSoftware Design Document
ps. I hate documentation, but it is easy to do while my brain is as fried as it is.
